Becoming a Member of The Algonkian Author Salon
Writers at Author Salon get published the old fashioned way. They earn it.
You may begin the application process to the Algonkian Author Salon ON THIS PAGE, but first, please read the following steps below designed to guide you through the process. Note that you are not required to have a full novel or nonfiction written in order to join. You might only have a partial. However, we ask that you allow the AS Profile Guide to cajole you into filling in the blanks, if necessary, on matters related to your project (e.g., aspects of your plot, conflict, characters, etc).
If you review the AS Project Profile and feel you need to progress in your studies or develop your story further, or perhaps acquire new techniques and skills before joining, we offer a comprehensive ALGONKIAN NOVEL WRITING PROGRAM that covers all the vital elements related to market and structure such as premise, plot line(s), character and theme, as well as those elements related to issues of style, voice, viewpoint, narrative enhancement and effective scene storyboarding and development.
Steps and Ponderings as Follows:
1. Go to our AS PROFILE GUIDE and print that page (print link top right).
2. Review what is required by the Profile Guide. This information about you and your novel, or narrative non-fiction (both are stories, just one purports to be more factual), will be entered into your profile.
3. Keep your responses required by the Profile Guide in a separate file on your computer, just in case you have a problem with the form interface online.
4. At this juncture, you may wish to fill out the AS PROFILE FORM online. However, if you have reviewed the profile guide and feel that it contains questions you cannot yet answer, you have two options. The first is to take the program noted above that will assist you in filling in the blanks. The second is to do as much as you can and post it regardless. In any blank profile field you cannot answer, enter the words WORKING ON IT.
As a member of the site, you may return and edit the profile as necessary (especially if you are enrolled in the Algonkian Novel Writing Program).
